Affiliation: | Member, School of Mathematics |

Date: | Tuesday, October 5 |

Time/Room: | 2:00pm - 3:00pm/S-101 |

In this talk I will overview two very different kinds of random simplicial complex, both of which could be considered higher-dimensional generalizations of the Erdos-Renyi random graph, and discuss what is known and not known about the expected topology of each. Some of this is joint work with Eric Babson and Chris Hoffman.
